My twenty-eight years' experience includes domestic and international adoption , foster care services and post- adoption support, and mental health counseling to adolescents and adults.
I believe that human growth occurs in a relational context, and we all have the ability to envision a better life and create our own solutions. To me, counseling is a collaborative process in which clients and I join to discover possibilities, set achievable goals, and follow the chosen path together. I provide a safe space for clients to explore their challenges, gain insight into underlying needs, consider effective ways to meet those needs, and acquire whatever tools they need to strengthen important relationships.

Kids don't come with instruction manuals. As parents, we want what is best for our children, but sometimes we may feel a little stuck. Partnering with a therapist can help to get your family moving forward again. I work exclusively with children, teens and their parents. As a trained play therapist & expressive therapist, I am able to connect to children & teens in a way that makes sense to them. I help kids, teens and parents to navigate trauma, new life challenges, divorce, bullying, low self-esteem, physical abuse, sexual abuse, adoption issues, anxiety, attachment issues & parenting coaching/support.

I have experience treating anxiety, depression, grief and loss, school and behavioral challenges, adoption issues, parenting coaching/support, learning differences, peer relationships, attachment, divorce, and life transitions.
My goal as a therapist is to allow space to explore your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors in a collaborative environment. During therapy, we can gain insight about where symptoms originated, while also working to cope with and mitigate distressing feelings in the present. Therapy can allow you to be healthier, feel freer, and to establish deeper, more compassionate, connections with yourself and others. I work with adults and children in individual therapy and also provide parenting support to individuals/couples who want more effective parenting strategies or to feel closer to their child(ren).

I have special training in spiritual issues, adoption and foster issues, and domestic violence.
Welcome :) I offer a calm, non-judgemental space to those who need a place to sort out their problems and identify and work toward their goals. I've often worked with those who have experienced trauma, those who feel or are different, those going through a hard transition, those with tricky relationships, and those learning to manage intense emotions. I've noticed that even those who have a hard time naming their feelings can get a lot out of counseling if they are willing to just start talking.

I also enjoy doing work surrounding infertility issues and adoption .
I believe that it is necessary to address the physical and emotional aspects of one's self. Therapy is a partnership; it is also a journey that we will share together. I consider myself a very compassionate person, but in therapy I am also very active within the process. I hope that my patients will be open and honest with their issues and needs. Trust and honesty is the basis for therapy to be successful.

*I specialize in psychological testing/assessment/evaluation* Psychological evaluation is a valuable tool which can provide you and your doctor, clinician, or attorney with important information. For instance, do I have a mental health diagnosis that can help my attorney defend me in court? Does my child have ADHD? Do I suffer from PTSD, depression, or anxiety? Am I ready to go back to work or should I seek disability? How concerned should I be about my teenager's changes in mood and behavior? I use a combination of interviews and tests which are tailored to the individual and his/her/their questions and issues.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
